Tropico 6 DLC From New Developer This Month

Kalypso Entertainment announces that German developer Realmforge Studios is taking over the Tropico series going forward. Their first contribution to the banana republic simulation is a new add-on for Tropico 6 called Caribbean Skies that will arrive on December 16th. Tropico 6 was originally developed by Limbic Entertainment, another German studio. They explain the change is part of a shift towards more internal development, as they took full ownership of Realmforge at the beginning of this year. "The expansion and complete takeover of the shares is a logical consequence of our strategy to expand our own development resources not only in Germany but internationally," explains Kalypso Media Managing Partner Simon Hellwig. "We are offering the highly qualified, motivated team in Munich the opportunity to focus exclusively on the further development of exciting franchises such as Tropico, Dungeons and Spacebase Startopia in the future." A Steam Listing for Caribbean Skies is now online, and here's a bit of what it has to say about the DLC:
